Domestic Chicken Zoological Poster - Gallus domesticus
The Chicken is one of the most widespread domesticated fowl in the world and has been cultivated for its eggs and meat as far back as 8,000 BCE in Northern China. Through generations of selective breeding, the chicken has become flightless. Although a chicken can live up to 6 years, a typical broiler chicken is ready for slaughter and consumption after as little as 6 weeks. Today, more than 50 billion chickens are reared annually accounting for up to 74% of all poultry meat in the world. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.
Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
